A Brief History Of Animal Crackers Pet Sitting Service


Cindy Frye Oct 2015 Inside with dogsAnimal Crackers Pet Sitting was started by me, “Cindy Frye” in 2001 because of my love and devotion for animals.

My husband Ken and I used a pet sitter when we traveled and felt it was such a nice alternative to kennel boarding. In Bakersfield, kennel boarding will always be a necessity, but families have another option with Animal Crackers Pet Sitting. I believe most dogs and cats would prefer the comfort and security of their own home and I love providing this service.

With a desire to work around pets, I volunteered for several animal organizations, including serving as a director on the original Friends of Kern County Animal Shelters Foundation for three years. In 2009, I started a non-profit called Bakersfield Pet Food Pantry, where I actively volunteer my time helping to feed family pets, whose owners have fallen upon hard times.

I know how stressful it is to leave our beloved pets behind, which is why I started Animal Crackers Pet Sitting. I am committed to providing the best professional care to you and your pets and creating a loving and relaxed atmosphere for your pets while you are away. I do not have employees. I will be the person taking care of your pets.
